Progesterone receptor content was measured in tissue samples from 175 patients with endometrial adenocarcinoma by use of the dextran-charcoal method. The estradiol receptor content was determined in 138 of these samples. Ninety-two tumors (52.6%) tested positive for progesterone receptors (greater than 50 fmol/mg cytosol protein) and 111 (80.4%) tested(More)
OBJECTIVE Recommendations to prevent vertical transmission of group B Streptococcus (GBS) infections have resulted in many women's receiving antibiotics during labor with an associated reduction in early-onset GBS infections in their newborn infants. However, a potential relationship of intrapartum antibiotics (IPA) to the occurrence of late-onset (7-90(More)
Bisphenol A (BPA) is the monomer component of polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins; human exposure derives from leachate in foodstuffs packaged in certain plastics or from epoxy-based dental appliances. BPA stimulates prolactin secretion in Fischer 344 (F344) rats but not in Sprague-Dawley (S-D) rats. The present studies were performed to determine if(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the frequency of Kawasaki disease (KD) diagnosis in patients who did and did not meet American Heart Association (AHA) diagnostic criteria and to examine the clinical findings, the time to treatment, and the outcomes of the two groups. DESIGN Retrospective review of all patients with a discharge diagnosis of KD at a tertiary care(More)
Estrogen and progesterone receptors were measured in tissues from 43 patients with various uterine sarcomas using the dextran-coated charcoal assay. Estrogen receptor was present in 55.5% and progesterone receptor in 55.8% of samples, at median estrogen and progesterone receptor concentrations of 10.7 and 15.8 fmol/mg cytosol protein, respectively. These(More)
This study was designed to determine whether the presence of progesterone receptors (PR) and/or estradiol receptors (ER) could be used to predict progestin responsiveness of recurrent or advanced endometrial cancers. We have demonstrated the presence of physicochemically similar cytoplasmic progesterone and estradiol receptors in normal, hyperplastic, and(More)
BACKGROUND There are an estimated 5.9 million children with severe disabilities in the USA, and most of them are cared for at home by their parents and families. Indirect evidence suggests that poor caregiver health may contribute to recurrent hospitalizations and out-of-home placements for children with chronic conditions and disabilities. Greater(More)
